Invitation



Wednesday - Pentecost Invitation


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



The Lord is in his holy tem-ple;
let all the earth keep silence be-fore him
I was glad when they said to me,
Let us go to/the house of/the Lord.

Let the words of my mouth
and the medi-ta-tion of my heart
be ac-cepta-ble in your sight, O Lord,
my strength and my re-deem-er.

Thus says the high and lofty One
who in-habits e-terni-ty,
whose name is Ho-ly,
I dwell in/the high and holy place

Send out your light
and your truth, that they may lead me,
and bring me to your holy hill
and to your dwel-ling place.

Give thanks to/the Lord, and call on his Name;
make known his deeds a-mong the peo-ples.
Lord, o-pen our lips.
And our mouth shall pro-claim your praise.

Glory to/the Fath-er, and to/the Son,
and to/the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in/the be-ginning, is now,
and will be for ever A-men.


Wednesday - Venite


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Come, let's sing to/the Lord;
let's shout for joy to/the Rock of our sal-va-tion.
Let's come be-fore his presence with thanks-giv-ing
and raise a loud shout to him with psalms.

For the Lord is/a great God,
and a great King a-bove all gods.
In his hand are the caverns of/the earth,
and the heights of/the hills are his al-so.

The sea is his, for he made it,
and his hands have molded the dry land.
Come, let's bow down, and bend the knee,
and kneel be-fore the Lord our Mak-er.

For he is our God,
and we are the people of his pas-ture
and the sheep of his hand.
Oh, that to-day you would hearken to his voice!


Psalms



Psalm 119:49-72


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Re-member your word to your serv-ant,
for you have given me hope.
For Solo-mon. O God, grant the king
the a-bili-ty to make just de-ci-sions!

Grant the king’s son
the a-bili-ty to make fair de-ci-sions!
Then he will judge your people fair-ly,
and your op-pressed ones equi-ta-bly.

The mountains will bring news of peace to/the peo-ple,
and the hills will an-nounce jus-tice.
He will de-fend the op-pressed a-mong the peo-ple;
he will de-liver the children of/the poor and crush the op-pres-sor.

People will fear you as long/as the sun and moon re-main in/the sky,
for gener-a-tion after gener-a-tion.
He will de-scend like rain on/the mown grass,
like showers that drench the earth.

During his days the god-ly will flour-ish;
peace will pre-vail as long/as the moon re-mains in/the sky.
May he rule from sea to sea,
and from/the Eu-phra-tes Riv-er to/the ends of/the earth!

Be-fore him the coastlands will bow down,
and his ene-mies will lick the dust.
The kings of Tar-shish and the coastlands will of-fer gifts;
the kings of She-bah and Se-bah will bring trib-ute.

All kings will bow down to him;
all na-tions will serve him.
For he will res-cue the needy when they cry out for help,
and the op-pressed who have no de-fend-er.

He will take pity on/the poor and need-y;
the lives of/the needy he will save.
From harm and vio-lence he will de-fend them;
he will val-ue their lives.

May he live! May they offer him gold from She-bah!
May they con-tin-ual-ly pray for him!
May they pro-nounce blessings on him all day long!
May there be an a-bundance of grain in/the earth;

On the tops of/the mountains may it sway!
May its fruit trees flour-ish like the forests of Leb-a-non!
May its crops be as a-bundant as the grass of/the earth!
May his fame and glory en-dure!

May his dy-nasty last as long/as the sun re-mains in/the sky!
May they use his name when they com-pose their bles-sings!
May all na-tions con-sider him to be fa-vored by God!
The Lord God, the God of Is-ra-el, de-serves praise!

He a-lone ac-com-plishes a-mazing things!
His glori-ous name de-serves praise for-ever-more!
May his ma-jestic splendor fill the whole earth!
We a-gree! We a-gree! A-men!

Glory to/the Fath-er, and to/the Son,
and to/the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in/the be-ginning, is now,
and will be for-ever A-men.


Readings



A reading from 1 Samuel 25:23-44


When Abigail saw David, she got down quickly from the donkey, threw herself facedown before David, and bowed to the ground. Falling at his feet, she said, “My lord, I accept all the guilt! But please let your female servant speak to you! Please listen to the words of your servant! My lord should not pay attention to this wicked man Nabal. He simply lives up to his name! His name means ‘fool,’ and he is indeed foolish! But I, your servant, did not see the servants my lord sent.

“Now, my lord, as surely as the Lord lives and as surely as you live, it is the Lord who has kept you from shedding blood and taking matters into your own hands. Now may your enemies and those who seek to harm my lord be like Nabal. Now let this present that your servant has brought to my lord be given to the servants who follow my lord. Please forgive the sin of your servant, for the Lord will certainly establish a lasting dynasty for my lord, because my lord fights the battles of the Lord. May no evil be found in you all your days! When someone sets out to chase you and to take your life, the life of my lord will be wrapped securely in the bag of the living by the Lord your God. But he will sling away the lives of your enemies from the sling’s pocket! The Lord will do for my lord everything that he promised you, and he will make you a leader over Israel. Your conscience will not be overwhelmed with guilt for having poured out innocent blood and for having taken matters into your own hands. When the Lord has granted my lord success, please remember your servant.”

Then David said to Abigail, “Praised be the Lord, the God of Israel, who has sent you this day to meet me! Praised be your good judgment! May you yourself be rewarded for having prevented me this day from shedding blood and taking matters into my own hands! Otherwise, as surely as the Lord, the God of Israel, lives—he who has prevented me from harming you—if you had not come so quickly to meet me, by morning’s light not even one male belonging to Nabal would have remained alive!” Then David took from her hand what she had brought to him. He said to her, “Go back to your home in peace. Be assured that I have listened to you and responded favorably.”

When Abigail went back to Nabal, he was holding a banquet in his house like that of the king. Nabal was having a good time and was very intoxicated. She told him absolutely nothing until morning’s light. In the morning, when Nabal was sober, his wife told him about these matters. He had a stroke and was paralyzed. After about 10 days the Lord struck Nabal down and he died.

When David heard that Nabal had died, he said, “Praised be the Lord who has vindicated me and avenged the insult that I suffered from Nabal! The Lord has kept his servant from doing evil, and he has repaid Nabal for his evil deeds.” Then David sent word to Abigail and asked her to become his wife.

So the servants of David went to Abigail at Carmel and said to her, “David has sent us to you to bring you back to be his wife.” She arose, bowed her face toward the ground, and said, “Your female servant, like a lowly servant, will wash the feet of the servants of my lord.” Then Abigail quickly went and mounted her donkey, with five of her female servants accompanying her. She followed David’s messengers and became his wife.

David had also married Ahinoam from Jezreel; the two of them became his wives. (Now Saul had given his daughter Michal, David’s wife, to Paltiel son of Laish, who was from Gallim.)

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Wednesday - Song of Zechariah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Bless-ed be the Lord, the God of Is-ra-el;
he has come to his people and set them free.
He has raised up for us a mighty sav-ior,
born of/the house of his servant Da-vid.

Through his holy proph-ets he prom-ised of old,
that he would save us from our ene-mies,
from the hands of all who hate us.
He prom-ised to show mer-cy to our fath-ers

and to re-member his holy cov-e-nant.
This was the oath he swore to our fath-er A-bra-ham,
to set us free from/the hands of our ene-mies,
Free to wor-ship him without fear,

ho-ly and righteous in his sight
all the days of our life.
And you, my child, shall be called
the proph-et of/the Most High,

for you will go be-fore the Lord to pre-pare his way,
To give his people knowledge of sal-va-tion
by the for-give-ness of their sins.
In/the tender com-pas-sion of our God

the dawn from on high shall break up-on us,
To shine on those who dwell in dark-ness
and in/the shadow of death,
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Glory to/the Fath-er, and to/the Son,
and to/the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in/the be-ginning, is now,
and will be for-ever A-men.


A reading from Mark 4:35-41


On that day, when evening came, Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s go across to the other side of the lake.” So after leaving the crowd, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat, and other boats were with him. Now a great windstorm developed and the waves were breaking into the boat, so that the boat was nearly swamped. But he was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. They woke him up and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care that we are about to die?” So he got up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Be quiet! Calm down!” Then the wind stopped, and it was dead calm. And he said to them, “Why are you cowardly? Do you still not have faith?” They were overwhelmed by fear and said to one another, “Who then is this? Even the wind and sea obey him!”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Wednesday - Song to the Lamb


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Splendor and honor and king-ly power
are yours by right, O Lord our God,
For you cre-ated every-thing that is,
and by your will they were cre-ated and have their be-ing;

And yours by right, O Lamb that was slain,
for with your blood you have re-deemed for God,
From eve-ry fami-ly, lan-guage, people, and na-tion,
a kingdom of priests to serve our God.

And so, to him who sits up-on/the throne,
and to Je-sus Christ the Lamb,
Be worship and praise, do-min-ion and splen-dor,
for-ever and for-ever-more.

Glory to/the Fath-er, and to/the Son,
and to/the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in/the be-ginning, is now,
and will be for-ever A-men.
